I saw that one not too long ago. The effects are permanent. What these drugs are adding to the brain, are in fact really depleting the brain of naturally.

I'm not in the US so i don't know if this is the place to put this but there is nothing in my country where i can add, but i do know that the drug that was prescribed to my son is used widely in the US also, it's a medication called cricadin & is a hormone replacement for Melatonin. MY son who is 4 was recently diagnosed as autistic & on the same day he was diagnosed the specialist doc that we saw prescribed him with the medication, i did question as to why as i am very against prescription drugs & very into natural remedies, i was told that it would help him to settle at night!! My son although autistic is a happy boy & is unsettled at night but nothing out of the norm many 4yr olds are i did not see it as a problem! against my better judgment i gave him the 2mg dose & within a few days my happy child had turned into an uncontrollable emotional wreck having meltdowns for no reason & not sleeping at all, i rang the doc to tell them i was stopping the meds & to my disbelief was told to double the dose! i did not take their advise i stopped the meds, my child is now back to is happy self. At the next docs visit i was told to start the meds again which i have no intention of doing, why would i give meds to my child which he dose not need & affect him so greatly! i do not trust any of the medical professionals at all never have i feel their agenda is not for our best interests, i feel it is a global problem.

There is no such thing as a safe drug! The major drug companies try to minimise the side effects simply because they want you to carry on taking their poisons.  Think about it - if they cured everyone they'd be out of business and that would strip them of the power they have in the higher echelons of the elite.
All drugs - and they know it, will eventually create a new problem further down the line - and that's the whole idea - they're in business forever. No business man would ever sell you a toilet Roll that never runs out. They know natural remedies work (Hey come on - all their drugs start out from natural healing plants etc then they add their secret chemicals to ensure future illness and the inability of the masses to copy them.)
 People have disappeared after finding powerful natural remedies or have given there information over willingly believing they've found some miraculous cure that's going to help humanity then the big guys shut them up, take it and use it for their own ends.
Another point that people just don't seem to catch on to is the fact that apart from surgery when something is cut out or repaired or the use of antibiotics what do Doctors cure - THEY DON'T they simply treat symptoms with medication you may need to take for the rest of your life and you think you are cured.  Yea Right.  Then low and behold you find you have some other dreaded disease/condition which was brought about by the medication given to treat your initial condition.
The body is very capable of self healing and yes it does often need some help along the way - eating healthy food and getting some regular exercise, and above all learn to relax as stress is one of the main causes of disease (Proven) Keep away from all the drugs/smoking etc and refuse to entertain negative thoughts (I know it's difficult) but this is the key to good health.  If you do become ill take advise from the experts in natural therapies and only when all else fails take that trip to the GP but be in control of your own body, it's yours and no one knows it better than you - it's your temple.
BE WARNED - Never submit to the new micro chips that they are going to convince you are the best thing since sliced bread. (READ UP ON THIS HIDDEN AGENDA) You're already chipped with you ID card/passport etc all in the name of your own safety (The biggest Con Ever)
Knowledge is Power READ, READ, READ AND READ. Inform yourself and your family.

As a "Special Education Teacher, I worked with many of the older autistic young people and I will tell you this, the ones on medicines were harder to get attentive with and on track than the ones that their good parents and I worked out daily plans for. I applaude you immensley!
Good lucck!

No, I have had absolutely none because I refuse to allow any Rx drugs or nasty vaccines in or on my body.  I dare you to look up how vaccines are made and what's in them.  It'll turn your stomach!

If the drugsters have to get legal freedom from of liability for the crap they make (which they have succeeded in doing), which kill over 100,000 people, just in this country alone, I'd be a fool to allow any of it to be injected into my bloodstream or to be swallowed into my body.
 
The last four prescriptions a doctor insisted on writing for me went straight into my shredder, but not before I looked up all the many the side effects, warnings, contraindications etc.   Then I knew I'd done the right thing.  After reading the horrific experiences of others on askapatient.com, I had no doubts.  Now just tell doctors right from the start not to waste my time and theirs even mentioning Rx drugs or vaccines because I will NEVER take any unless I've a traumatic injury and/or I'm standing at death's doorstep.

I informed them that I was there just for a check-up, and that if a problem was found, to give me a correct diagnosis and to let me know if they knew of a non-drug, non-surgical and a non-radiation CURE for it.  If not, I'd find it for myself.  I have no qualms about saying "NO!" to them and standing by my refusal because I am absolutely intimidation-proof.  I don't want a TREATMENT for any condition which just covers up the symptoms but does nothing to heal or cure anything.

I've never been healthier in my life, since I began avoiding doctors and the nasty, germ-laden hospitals.  I plan to live a healthy lifestyle and to reach at least 120 years of age.  

You can't drug your way to good health.  The molecules in these unnatural, synthetic, petrochemicals, which they call drugs and use as medicines, are found no where on this planet and they don't belong in our bodies.  Everything we need to be healthy is right out there in our natural environment.

I have to wonder if these unnatural chemicals put into our bodies are the reason for the dramatic rise in cancers (one in three people!), although naive, well-meaning people run around in pink every year raising millions of dollars and hand it over to the drug makers.  What a terrible, insane racket!
   
Big Pharma tells us all to keep giving them more and more $$$$ because the cure is just around the corner.  They've been telling us that for decades, but does anyone really think the gigantic cancer industry would really kill "the goose that lays the golden eggs" by finding or revealing a cure for anything?  Not one Rx drug has ever cured anything and none never will!  Even antibiotics have very bad side effects.  There's no money to be made from healthy people - only from those that get sick and stay sick - or worse.

I'm extremely careful regarding prescription drugs.  As another poster said, I go to Askapatient and read about nasty side effects, not that everyone will have them but I am particularly sensitive to drugs and must watch myself carefully.  I won't take any drug that isn't 20 years old, I want to know a generation of people have taken them and are still alive.  I have hypertension and the two drugs I do take (at lowest prescription level) make it normal (110/70) and they are both very old drugs, no side effects at all at these low doses.  I know that antibiotics are KILLERS (unfortunately there are times I have to take them, like recently when I had a root canal that blew up on me) and so I use prophylactic measures to keep from developing yeast overgrowth and depletion of good bacteria in my digestive tract.  All you have to do is watch the commercials for the "wonder drugs" to know how DANGEROUS they are.  Imagine taking a drug to make your EYELASHES GROW that can cause permanent discoloration of your EYEBALL!!!  Are women THAT stupid?  You can't trust the pharmaceutical companies one bit and far too many doctors are apparently being bribed to hand out drugs that can, and sometimes do, KILL you.

Re: Have you had prescription drug side effects?

You are very wise not to take a new drug that just came on the market because you would just be a guinea pig for Big Pharma.  Often, many of the serious side effects are revealed only after the drug has been marketed for much longer than Big Pharma's testing period.  Corruption is a big factor, too. They push the new drugs hard to get the most possible profit before their patent expires and then any drug company can sell it and/or sell generics of the drug.  I don't take any drugs but if I did, I would find out how long the drug has been marketed, as well as what all the possible side effects are.  Unfortunately, many people think that newer drugs are better, safer and more effective.  Nothing could be further from the truth.  The truth is just the opposite.

No, not everyone has the really bad Rx drug side effects as shown by the scores on askapatient.com, and the low scores point out the really toxic drugs.  Everyone's tolerance is different.  Also, people tend not to link a problem with the drugs they're taking.  If they finally do wise-up, and tell their doctors about it, the doctors will adamantly deny any connection and make the patient feel like a fool or psycho.

If I had a really bad infection and natural antibiotics  weren't working, I'd certainly resort to other antibiotics, too, to save my life.  I just recently cleared up a very bad infection in a tooth that a dentist wanted desperately to extract and replace with a costly implant. I cleared it up myself with just a few drops of Oil of oregano in less than a day and now I just put one drop on the area every night at bedtime, just to make sure it doesn't return.  If I eventually just have have the tooth removed later, I'll make sure it is replaced with a totally metal-free implant, which are much safer and durable, but so not easy to find.

Yes, sadly many women are unwise and vain enough to put Latisse on their eyelashes regardless of those side effects.  Many people hear all the horrible and deadly side-effects of a drug on TV and still demand that their doctors give it to them.  The doctor-pusher is eager to oblige, or else some other one will. When the drug is withdrawn because it killed scores of people, the drug company just comes out with more and more such drug and these same people run then back to their doctor and demand that drug, too.  Do they ever consider informing themselves first?  I trust drug companies and their pushers just as far as I can throw a skyscraper!

Remember how perky, sweet little Sally Fields hawked Boniva hour after, day after day for ages and then suddenly dropped from sight like a stone?  It was because the news got out that users were having even worse osteoporosis and their jawbones were crumbling?  Many people are stupid enough to blindly trust any celebrity and follow them over the cliff.  Big Pharma knows this and takes full advantage of that fact ... and Sally was more than willing take Big Pharma's blood money to sweet-talk the adoring naive fans, no matter what  how dangerous the drug may be or how many lives it takes or ruins forever.

We are all ultimately responsible for our own health and we had better make sure we make well-informed decisions based on extensive research and common sense.  We should never just place our lives and health in someone else's hands, especially someone who stands to profit from us being obedient, blindly trusting, compliant and unquestioning, as well as continuously sick.  

"Stand up, speak out, talk back, ask questions and demand answers".  That is my motto.

As a long term, chronic pain patient, I am more than positive my body has been damaged from using Morphine Sulfate for over a decade. I have also taken Klonopin for just as long. I am severely constipated due to the Morphine. I have dramatic mood swings due to the Klonopin. I have been suffering from these additional ailments in tandem with my original medical issues. I wish I had the funds to find out exactly how damaged my body is due to taking these medications. I take over 300 mgs. of Morphine Sulfate daily. I take 1mg. of Klonopin four times daily. Lately, I have taken it upon myself to start dropping the amount of Morphine slowly but, surely. Same with the Klonopin. I have discovered the wonders of Cannabis (Marijuana) and although I fully understand smoking a raw, heated, plant material is not good for my lungs, it is well worth the effort to change my regimen as my Dr's won't even TALK about Cannabis. Then there is the stigma of using Morphine as a long term medication.

I know I'm off topic but, why do drug company commercials ADMIT the creator of some certain drug "Does not know exactly why this works but, it is BELIEVED to...." What the hell is this? I thought this is what the FDA is for! To keep us healthy and sane. Drugs TRULY helping people and the quality of their lives seem to have to go through all of the rigorous testing and other mandatory testing for safety and effectiveness, while drugs not really known why they work (on some people) are given the green light and allowed to be consumed by the public including children! and most the THESE drugs are of the very controversial type such as SSRI's (anti-depressants). We are in DANGER folks. We have allowed the monsters of the planet to take over and rule us like slaves. We are to blame for this. It is my belief, we must have a full on, ARMED conflict with those trying to destroy our country and ultimately, the whole world. Or else, what those "Kooky conspiracy nuts" were, are, and will continue to say, is the TRUTH.

I take off my hat to you for being so wise and for using the common sense God gave to all of us - to use.  Why would a doctor prescribe a replacement for melatonin, when the real,  natural melatonin can be bought right off the shelves of grocery stores, drug stores and health food stores - at least by anyone in the US?  Is it this way in your country?  I occasionally use melatonin myself and it is very effective and has no side effects.  It makes me go to sleep quickly and soundly and I awaken very refreshed.  

Why is it that the powers-to-be seek to discredit and ban more and more of the exact same vitamins, minerals, etc. that Nature put in our food to keep us healthy?  Does the multi-trillion dollar medical industry claim to know better than Nature? Nearly every month there is "news" of a study that "found" serious dangers in some natural supplement, but what most people don't know is that these "studies" are so bogus and that the "researchers" are paid off to "find" whatever the drug companies want to find for them.  For instance they report that their testing shows that a vitamin is dangerous, but, BUT, a synthetic form of the vitamin was used;  doses so small that they have no effect; the vitamin was used on very old and sick people who were already near death;  tests that showed real value and safety of the vitamin were discarded and never revealed; massive doses were given (even too much water can kill you); the vitamin was given to people who were already taking many dangerous Rx drugs; etc.  THE BOTTOM LINE IS MONEY, MONEY, MONEY, no matter what they have to do to us and to our precious children.  Our deaths are just collateral damage to them and our lives are worth nothing.

Ask yourself why a drug company would spend millions of dollars to test a supplement when they know that they can't make money off a natural substance because they can't patent it and have exclusive rights to market and sell it.  You can bet  Big Pharma is behind these bogus "studies" and they gladly spend the millions so they'll sound sooo....legitimate when they release their "findings" to impress and fool the general, naive public.  I am not impressed or duped because I do the research and think for myself, using common sense.

Every time Big Pharma's minions bad-talk a natural supplement, I go out and buy even more of it because I know it is effective and that they want it off the shelves because it competes with one of their drugs, or one they want to market.  They can make their "findings" seem so plausible, but thank God, I've been around long enough, seen enough, used my good sense and been jerked around enough, that I am BS-proof.  I just wish there were more like you, I and many more who are beginning to open their eyes and minds. I'm not telling you what to do or not do, but I personally would do exactly as you are doing and not put my trust in the hands of Big Pharma or their drug-pushing doctors.

Bill Gates, who wants everyone on earth to get vaccinated to the hilt, says that with vaccines,  the world population could be brought way down.  (Google ~Bill Gates vaccinations world population~ and see what I mean.)  Now, haven't we been told that vaccines are safe, effective and are supposed to save lives and make us all healthy - (BTW - none of this is true.)?  

Someone, please tell us how Bill Gates and his ultra-rich, evil and secretive minions would use vaccines to drastically decrease the population of the world unless they are used to kill off billions of us.  Yes, this is exactly that - a deadly, evil, global agenda of the worse kind. I will not be put off if people like me are called conspiracy theorists.  The words of Bill Gates, and the many others who think just as he does, are right out there for all of us to read and hear for ourselves.

Bill Gates vaccines will depopulate because: many of the shots have polysorbate 80 [Tween 80] that causes inflammation & is used to sterilyze lab animals. This has been used experimentally by USA before in South America & the Phillipines where many women were made barren w/o knowledge or consent. Also most polio vaccines in Africa are the Oral form [banned in USA now] which is the LIVE virus that CAUSED the polio pandemic and was admitted to by Salk in 1970 before Congress.  Not only does this virus mutate & cause polio , but the vaccine contains simian monkey virus 40 which causes cancer. [see www.sv40foundation.org] They discovered this in the 1950's after they had inoculated over a million children but kept quiet for fear of lawsuits & money loss. [read The History of Vaccines by Neil Miller] The toxic ingrediants alone [see www.cdc.gov under vaccine media & excipients] will make a healthy person sick. If you are undernourished or HIV compromised it is a death sentence and who will prove it? Some have been warned by a few brave souls and hide in the bush when the armed teams come into villages to force the "cures" . The so called HIV and malaria vaccines are experimental and have failed miserably here & in europe. Big Pharma is looking to 3rd world countries for guinea pigs as the chances of being caught or prosecuted are slim.
